Not exclusively: Liquid diet preparations need to contain a balance of the nutrients you need throughout the day. If they do, they are a convenient way to take in a calorie-controlled meal. But its best to also have the fiber/other benefits of food. Replacing one or at most two meals with a balanced liquid diet can be ok. Danger of all liquid diets: calories too low, lose too fast, metabolism falls, REGAIN! ...Read more

May have Diabetes: Your fasting blood sugar of over 100, but under 126, is in the Pre-Diabetes range. Your Maximum of 235 is likely to represent Diabetes (any random glucose over 200). I recommend you see your doctor and request a test called a Hemoglobin A1C, which is essentially a test of the average sugar load in your blood over the past 2-3 months. Either way, this needs medical attention and less sugar. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No problem: It's all about how many calories you consume. Depending on your diet plan, this should be anywhere from 1200-2000 calories a day. It's perfectly okay to get them all at the same time, or to spread them out. Some people say that several small meals help you lose weight faster, but if it works for you it's fine. ...Read more

For problems with inadequate peristalsis (nonspecific neuromuscular problem), is a liquid diet good? Can liquify fruits, veggies, tofu for p.M. Meal
Depends: Liquids tend to be easier to digest (as they are pre-digested down), but some neuromuscular problems are due in part to low vitamin B12 levels, and since B12 is in low quantity in vegetarian and especially vegan diets, it would be important to include this important nutrient. Medium-chain triglycerides and Amino Acids might also play a role in supplementation for such a liquid diet. ...Read more

Bowel flora : An inadequately-addressed problem of bowel function involves imbalance of bacterial population. Dietary changes and/or antibiotics can bring this on, and correction involves encouraging the lactobacillus and acidophilus organisms to proliferate, suppressing the methane-producing bacteria like e. Coli, proteus, pseudomonas, etc. Try a probiotic twice daily like culturelle, and yogurt twice daily. ...Read more

What to do if i'm on a liquid diet of meal replacement shakes (morning (hungry). Is this healthy way to diet?
Depends: if it is your usual food liquified, obviously you'll get the same results as regularly eating. if it is just water and you skip ONE meal a day.. not very bad generally and MIGHT lose a little weight.
